Man Utd boss Solskjaer admits admiration for Burnley winger McNeil

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted his admiration for Burnley winger Dwight McNeil.

United host Burnley later today.

Solskjaer told manutd.com: "They're very well organised, very experienced, [have] players that have been around the block and some individual quality that will always be difficult to defend against. Set-plays, always, with the quality.

"You've got Dwight McNeil [whose] delivery is very difficult, they've got big lads in there [that will] put their bodies on the line, they want to head the ball, good movement. Just a well-coached team.

"But we're ready for it. We're building momentum again after the disappointment of the cup game against Leicester, so the boys are in a good place."
